What is Plastic Surgery

plastic surgery

 

plastic surgery

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body.

Plastic surgery can be divided into 2 categories. One is reconstructive surgery which aims to reconstruct a part of the body to improve its functioning. It includes craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and treatment of the burns. The other is cosmetic or aesthetic surgery which aims at improving the appearance of the body. Both of these techniques are commonly used throughout the world, especially South Korea.

Plastic surgery sub-specialties

Plastic surgery is a broad field, and may be subdivided further:

  • Aesthetic surgery

aesthetic surgery includes facial and body surgery for aesthetic purposes. Plastic surgeons use cosmetic surgical principles in all reconstructive surgical problems as well as isolated operations to improve overall appearance.

  • Burn surgery

Burn surgery generally takes  place in tho phases: acute burn surgery is the treatment immediately after a burn, reconstructive burn surgery takes place after the burn wounds have healed.

  • Craniofacial surgery

Craniofacial surgery is a surgical subspecialty that deals with congenital and acquired deformities of the head, skull, face, neck, jaws and associated structures.

Crainofacial surgery is divided into pediatric and adult craniofacial surgery. Pediatric surgery mostly revolves around the treatment of congenital anomalies of the crainofacial skeleton and soft tissues such as cleft lip and palate, crainosynostosis, and pediatric fractures.

Adult craniofacial surgery deals mostly with fractures and secondary surgeries (such as orbital reconstruction) along with orthognathic surgery. Craniofacial surgery is an important part of all plastic surgery training programs, further training and subspecialisation is obtained via a craniofacial fellowship.

  • Hand surgery

Hand surgery deals with both surgical and non-surgical treatment of conditions and problems that may take place in the hand or upper extremity (commonly from the tip of the hand to the shoulder) including injury and infection. Hand surgery may be practiced by graduates of general surgery, orthopedic surgery, and plastic surgery.

  • Microsurgery

Microsurgery is generally concered with the reconsturction of missing tissues by transferring a piece of tissue to the reconstuction site and reconnecting blood vessels.

  • Pediatric plastic surgery

Children often face medical issues very different from the experiences of an adult patient. Many birth defects or syndromes present at birth are best treated in childhood, and pediatric plastic surgeons specialize in treating these conditions in children. Conditions commonly treated by pediatric plastic surgeons include craniofacial anomalies, Syndactyly (webbing of the fingers and toes), Polydactyly (excess fingers and toes at birth), cleft lip and palate, and congenital hand deform

plastic surgery

Who might benefit off of plastic surgery

  • Those with congenital abnormalities
  • Those with burns or other serious injuries
  • Those who want to have confidence boost by improving their appearance

How plastic surgery is done

In plastic surgery, the transfer of skin tissue (skin grafting) is a very common procedure. Skin grafts can be derived from the recipient or donors:

  • Autografts are taken from the recipient. If absent or deficient of natural tissue, alternatives can be cultured sheets of epithelial cells in vitro or synthetic compounds, such as integra, which consists of silicone and bovine tendon collagen with glycosaminoglycans.
  • Allografts are taken from a donor of the same species.
  • Xenografts are taken from a donor of a different species.

When should you consider plastic surgery?

You should consider plastic surgery when you feel serious unhappiness or unsatisfaction because of your looks or part of your body, or when you find it difficutl to do certain task because of non-functioning body part.

Reconstructive surgery vs Aesthetic surgery

Reconstuctive surgery is done in order to fix non-functioning body that has caused an abnormal change in body shape or appearance. This is done in general hospital.

Aesthetic surgery or plastic surgery is performed to change body shape or appearance, usually when no medical condition is present. However, sometimes, the surgery treats conditions that have resulted from another medical condition that is no longer an issue. You can have plastic surgery at plastic surgery clinics or hospitals.

Plastic surgery risks and side effects

Plastic surgery, like every other surgery procedures, don’t come without risks, such as:

  • Bleeding
  • Pain and discomfort
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Nerve damage or numbness
  • Necrosis
  • Seroma
  • Anesthesia issues
  • Poor cosmetic outcome
  • Death

Reducing the risk

Like any surgery, the patient has the ability to reduce the risk of complications. Lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, are extremely important before surgery, as non-smokers heal faster and have less scarring. Some plastic surgeons will not perform surgery on current smokers because the final outcome may not be as good. In addition, eating a healthy diet before and after the procedure can speed healing and improve wound closure, which also minimizes scarring.

The best way to reduce the risk of a bad outcome is to choose the surgeon who performs the procedure wisely. Your safest bet is to utilize the help of medical tourism agents as they have reliable and up-to-date data of anything regarding plastic surgery, as well as the best current doctors for any specific surgery.

Charm Your Way with Korean Dimple Surgery

korea medical tourism

Dimples are undoubtedly the cutest deformity ever. These little holes on your cheeks just make you look super cute for no reason. It doesn’t matter how ugly you look in a photo, your dimples will always somehow make your face look a little less of a mess.

korea medical tourism

Why do some people have dimples and others don’t? It’s generally agreed that dimples are genetic – but there’s an argument about the details. For a long time, dimples were considered “dominant” genetic trait: if both your parents had them, you’d always develop some cuteness of your own.

Now, however, some scientists are arguing that they’re actually irregular dominant traits – so having two parents with dimples doesn’t guarantee you with such blessing 100 percent of the time. One specialist, Professor John McDonald, thinks there isn’t enough research to classify dimples as a dominant trait at all. What’s agreed upon, though is that dimples are actually a defect on your face.

korea medical tourism

As mentioned though, not everyone is blessed with this kind of cuteness on their faces. If you’re one of such people, do not fret as Korean plastic surgery offers a nice solution for that problem within 15 minutes. So, no hospital stays required. The result is so natural that nobody would be able to tell the difference!

The surgery in question is called dimple creation surgery. Dimples will be created from inner side of your mouth so it won’t leave visible scars, and furthermore the shape and size of the dimples will be designed based on your face’s overall look, so there’s zero reason to worry about them not fitting or ending up looking weird.

There are several kinds of dimple surgeries. In Grand Plastic Surgery for instance, the option consists of:

  1. Long dimples give off cute, soft, and also mature and sexy image.
  2. Indian dimples give off an innocent and naughty image.
  3. Mouth corner dimples give off cute, prim, and precocious image.
  4. Central cheek dimples give off young, cute, and also soft impression.

korea medical tourism

You are the right candidate for dimple creation surgery if the following applies to you:

  1. You wish to change the impression you give.
  2. You have desires to have an attractive point for the dull smiling face.
  3. You have desire to have clearer and deeper dimples.
  4. You wish to have a revision surgery because of unsatisfactory previous result.

There are various ways to achieve beautiful pointy face, from food diet to make up. However, those are temporary solutions and must be done repeatedly, not to mention they require a lot of patience. If you want an easy, instant, and permanent solution, then plastic surgery is the answer.

V-line surgery is a plastic surgery operation to make your face look more thin and oval by narrowing the face towards the chin like the letter V. A lot of celebrities have this surgery in order to look more attractive in front of camera.
Before deciding to have this surgery done, though, you need to make sure whether or not the surgery is right for you, otherwise your face can end up looking weird instead. This surgery is intended for those with wide face, square jaw or double jaw, or short face with big chin.
So you have decided to have this surgery. Next, there are steps you need to follow. First of all, just like any surgeries, you need to consult your surgeon a lot, tell your doctor if you are suffering from a disease or are taking certain drugs. Also, you need to convey your wishes and goals as clear as possible so both you and your doctor are on same page. Make sure your surgeon does not misinterpret your desires since this is one of the main reason people are unhappy with their results.
After your consultations, you will be required to take a health test so the hospital can be sure that you don’t have any diseases that will affect your health after undergoing surgery.

You should avoid food with hard texture within 2 weeks after surgery since it will overwork your freshly operated jaw. Instead, you should eat soft textured food like porridge, fruit juice, soft cake, or boiled vegetables.

Should you have postoperative swelling, you can compress it with ice regularly to minimize the swelling.
